On Sunday, you will be presenting your project to a panel of judges based on the technical difficulty, innovation, originality, and practicality of your product. The top 3 teams will be awarded prizes.
Do we have to stay the whole time?
All participants must be present at registration on Friday night. The event will break from Friday night to Saturday morning, but then will continue through the night to Sunday afternoon. Students are encouraged to stay for the full duration! We will also provide rooms where participants can rest for periods during the night. We recommend students bring a blanket because it can get chilly in the Innovation Hub.
